Give It A Chance

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Hartselle Enquirer,

Hockey, long derided as a Canadian or northern United States game, has gone through its growing pains in the southern United States, but the game is finally starting to catch on down here. Southern fans, in addition to being drawn to a winning team regardless of sport, have discovered the qualities of hockey that make it palatable to most sports fans. The game is fast, full of hitting and contact and features some great athletes. It's no secret that hockey is not your typical Southern sport, but the success that it's seen in cities like Nashville, Atlanta and Huntsville show that it's making ground in a part of the country where football is king and baseball is next in command.

Hasek Or Vokoun

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

Alois Hadamczik is a man with perhaps the toughest dilemma heading into next month's Turin Olympics. Never heard of him? He's the head coach of the men's Czech hockey team, a gold medal favourite along with Canada and Sweden, and he's on the hot seat right now. Will he ride Dominik Hasek or Tomas Vokoun in goal next month?

Eastern Needs

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,

With just two weeks to go before the Olympic break, and then one week after that until the trade deadline on Mar. 9, 30 NHL general managers have to make a call: Are we playing for right now, or is it time to look to the future? This week, let's analyze each team's needs, the players most likely on the trading block, and whether the team will focus more on buying or selling.

Buffalo Owner Trying Politics- Again

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the New York Press (New York's Alternative Newspaper),

Tom Golisano isn’t romantic. Not about life and not about public service, although it’s easy to think that only a man in love with civics would run for governor three times. Since that 2002 race, the political wannabe has worked to raise his profile, donating $14 million to the Rochester Institute of Technology, the largest gift the school has ever received. He’s also expanded from the exciting world of payroll services—where he made his fortune—and bought the NHL’s floundering Buffalo Sabres for $92 million, vastly raising his upstate profile.

Francis Can’t Hide On Saturday

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via CJAD,

On Saturday night, with the crowd on its feet in Raleigh, N.C., the 42-year-old will have to grin and bear it as the focus will be all on him with his No. 10 jersey being retired by the Carolina Hurricanes. "I would usually try and go the opposite way and avoid it," Francis said of being in the spotlight. "But as (Carolina GM) Jim Rutherford said in a conversation we had recently, it's going to be pretty hard to avoid on this night."
